Changhua/Zhanghua Info Please
Posted February 10th, 2013 - 7:20 am by from Taichung, Taiwan (Permalink)
Hi there

I am coming to work for one year in Taiwan on 4th March (very excited!).

My job is in Changhua/Zhanghua and I have been finding it a little difficult to find any online resources which have apartments/house shares in that area. I have tried Tealit and Craigs List sites without much luck. My employer says they will help but I would like to get a better feel myself before I get there.

Do people who work in Changhua typically live elsewhere, e.g., Taichung?

Any help anyone can give would be very much appreciated.

Cheers
Jules

It's a little far to commute from Taichung. you can search some house rental website, but most of them is chinese. craiglist is not so popular here. where is your office. Changhua city or county?

Hi Ken

Thanks for the reply. I'm actually not really sure where I will be working! I think it's County. (Didn't realise there was a difference!!!) Anyway I am currently in Singapore Airport waiting for my flight to Taipei so once I am online there and have more information about where I will be working etc I will get back in touch.

Cheers Jules

Well it would appear that on arrival I was taken to my new workplace which is actually in Dali, Taichung and I won't be working in Changhua after all. Still haven't gotten to the bottom of why but happy where I am so it's all good.

Thanks to all for your help. I am getting lots of help from my employer which was unexpected so it looks like I am all sorted.

Many thanks again.
Jules
